Very good italian

Great pasta and tapanades with the bread. I enjoyed the smaller rooms in the restaurant - not one big room. Great menu options, tons of delicious-sounding specials, and a lovely relaxing dinner after a long day of work.

The Ristorante Bonaroti seems to be our "go-to" restaurant for celebrating Birthdays! We had early reservations to celebrate both my wife and father-in-laws birthday this weekend. What a great choice. How many restaurants do you never need to open the menu, because the specials list is so long and delicious? I think all six of us ordered from the special... More

A beautiful hostess meets you at the door. You notice from the pictures on the wall that many folks far more famous than you have dined here. Sergio escorts you to your table and takes your drink order. Your waiter greets you and rattles off an impressive array of specials fit for an Italian epicure. It's Sunday and the wine... More

If you are looking for a great evening with Italian food, then it is a place. This is not a very expensive dinning place, and for that reason one can visit them regularly, like once in a week.

Extensive menu with all the courses. Prices are reasonable. Also specials nightly. Good for a business dinner or romantic night out. Wine list very good. Nice bar area. After a couple of times you sort of get the "Cheers" or neighborhood family atmosphere.

We like this place primarily because the cooking is a throw back to the heavier southern Italian cooking style. Lately it seems like almost every Italian place we go to is offering up the somewhat lighter fare from northern Italy. Sergio and Nicole work very hard to keep it authentic and it shows. The menu is extensive, and has a... More

We didn't realize that is wasn't super kid friendly until we got there. No one gave us a second look and the staff was great with the kids, but we were the only ones there with kids. Ours are very well behave so it was fine, but next time I will get a sitter. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.... More

This is a good friendly neighborhood restaurant. Four of us had lunch yesterday. My La Sagna was very good. My wife did not like her Fettucini with mushrooms saying it definitely was not good. Too oily and substandard. The service was excellent and the ambience was very nice. The owner and waiter were properly attentive and gracious. I think this... More

I have been eating at Ristorante Bonaroti for 25 years. Each visit is a delight. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food is great and the ambiance is modestly energetic but not noisy. The maitre de is knowledgeable about wine and the selection is pretty good. We brought our own on the last visit and he brought a... More
